Building strong reading skills provides a great foundation for your student to excel in school and in life. Reading exercises your brain, improves concentration, improves vocabulary and language skills, develops a child's imagination, while teaching them about different topics. Utilize the reading activities, booklets and toolkit on under our Department of Instruction and Curriculum: Reading by 3rd Grade to strengthen your child's reading skills.
